Yesterday morning I woke up to this.
My littlest sleeping so soundly with his little feet sticking out and I couldn't help but think about those little feet. I wondered if he would find a love for being outside hearing the rhymic sound of his feet as they hit the ground. Will he see mommy doing this thing and want to be like mommy? Will he want to see new places one foot fall at a time? Will he want to challenge himself when others simply give up?
I can only hope that he might find the same kind of joy in the simple pleasure of running that I enjoy. I hope that he might grow to use running as an outlet for stress and a time to reflect on things that matter to him.
While I run I will think about...
these little feet.
Do you hope that your kiddos enjoy running too?
Or do you focus more on just wanting them to be healthy and active?

Baby feet are the best :) I mostly want my girls to just be happy and healthy. I support them in anything they want to try. My oldest is really interested in running so far. I hope she continues to enjoy it as much as I do.ReplyDelete
Oh, baby feet are so small and the best! Yes, I do hope my kids love running so we can share it. Most of all I want them to be happy.ReplyDelete
Not sure yet if my kids will be runners. But I do want them to be happy, healthy and active in whatever endeavor they choose!ReplyDelete
How sweet. Isn't it funny what we wonder about our kiddos? What will they love that we do, what will be completely different? Only time will tell.ReplyDelete
But those sure are some cute baby piggies.
So cute! Baby feet are so precious.ReplyDelete
My kiddos like to run now, we'll see if it lasts.
Awww, I love this post! It made me smile. Little feetsies are the cutest. I'm sure your little one will love to run just like his Mama.ReplyDelete
ooh SOOO cute!!! omg adorable. I actually started running before my mom (about a year before) and now she's trying to keep up with me running marathons. It's funny how that works. I hope my someday children will run-- it's the basis of all athletics!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful post, baby feet make me crazy with their cuteness! I love how you captured the moment with photos, I am trying to do that more. Have a happy Friday!ReplyDelete
What sweet baby feet :) I hope too, that if they don't enjoy the gift of running that they enjoy the sweat and hard work that any sport requires and gives. Healthy and active is what is best :) Happy Friday!ReplyDelete
I do not have kids yet, but I know that when I do I will instill an active lifestyle in them with hopes they enjoy it!ReplyDelete
